Why it’s important to look after your mental health during COVID-19

OSHCglobal - The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly changed the way we live. To help keep us safe, it is likely that our lives will be different for a while.



When we aren’t able to see our friends and family regularly, it can be harder to keep on top of how we’re feeling.

Being aware of how you’re feeling and knowing what you can do to look after your mental wellbeing is an important part of staying healthy during this challenging time.

This includes thinking about the ways you work. Read our fact sheet for more information about mental health and wellbeing support for employees.
